The core is a common term people often talk about during exercise. It sounds like it is one muscle and may be confusing for many. If you think it is just one, it comprises 35 muscle groups. It is the central part of the body, which includes the pelvis, lower back, hips, and stomach. It is something that holds you right up. It provides stability for your spine and trunk and allows you to bend and move your spine. It helps with your posture and balance, preventing falls and injury. It enables us to make specific movements to exert force, etc. They are sometimes called abs. Core training helps strengthen the muscles for better balance and stability. We all know how important stability is to be performing day-to-day activities. And if you are into any sports, strong core muscles and strength are essential for performance.

Your core muscles, such as stabilizers and movers, can be divided based on their functions. People who do not have strong core muscles are more likely to experience injury, pain, or lower back problems. Strengthening your core muscles can help your back pain get better and lower the risk of falls. If you have fitness goals that include core exercises, it can help your overall well-being. Moreover, it may take a lot of work to achieve your goals. It requires determination and consistent efforts to keep going, but we all know that beginning something may be easier than continuing it. One has to put in a lot of effort and passion for moving forward. For instance, people challenge themselves to lose weight, but keeping at it as time passes is hard.

Emsculpt Can Help You

Remember, toning and muscle building can be complex, even with the workout. Our procedure is an FDA-approved and non-invasive body contouring technique that helps strengthen and tone the core. The FDA-approved device uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to tone your muscles. There is no preparation for the appointment beforehand as it is a non-invasive, painless procedure. It is a 30min procedure where we put device straps on your targeted area (stomach, butt, arm, or calf). The healthcare practitioner turns the device to its lowest setting as the power at a higher level can stress the muscles. The patients experience contractions in a few seconds now and then. They are super-intense vibrations that reach your core. We will check in regularly to see if you are comfortable. Then gradually increase the intensity, depending on your comfort level. In the last phase, muscle contraction will be slower but more powerful in flushing out toxins or lactic acid. You do not need a recovery time but may experience soreness like a workout. You can visibly see the changes in your body after the first treatment. For some patients, 2 to 4 sessions are enough, while some may need additional sessions. Our experts will assess and examine if you require additional treatment to achieve aesthetic goals during the consultation.
